I believe seeing some galaxies with the ETX90 should not be a problem.

Use lower magnification (longer focal length) eyepieces for the best view.

I suspect any galaxy that is a Messier object should be visible in your scope since these were cataloged centuries ago with much less instrumentation than you have.

Good luck.
